Mr. Romeo L. Bato, CPA, MM the guest of honor inspired the graduating class with his life-changing experiences. His message was centered into GPS, encouraging  the graduates to go beyond borders. The first letter G stands for GOALS. Citing a quote from an author he said, “Goals should be in writing, because if they are not written, they remain wishes – which may not come true.” “Read your goals everyday and you will realize you are getting closer towards reaching it because the more you read it, the more you become conscious of where you are heading to,” he added. The next letter P is all about preparation. Everyone was encouraged to continue learning. The last letter S stands for Service. “Becoming rich is within reach if you learn to serve other people,” he said. Be always willing to be of service to your community and the more people you help, the more you could be successful.

The hooding of graduates in the Masters Degree Program  as well as the distribution of the diploma were then made to the delight of the graduating class.
